Groundbreaking Evidence on Salt and Health to be presented

Naples, FL, USA, Aug. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Tenth World Salt Symposium will be held June 19-21, 2018 in Park City, Utah, and will feature nearly 100 presentations from around the globe covering all topics related to salt. Starting in the 1960's, people from around the world have gathered to share information on the health benefits and uses of salt, salt mining practices, and solar salt production. The last such meeting was held in Beijing, China in 2009. The extended period between these conferences ensures a far-reaching and inclusive technical content. This is, without doubt, the most important international meeting focused on the subject of salt.

The Tenth World Salt Symposium is organized by the Salt Institute, in cooperation with several other salt organizations around the world. The World Salt Symposium focuses on the latest research and development in the international salt sector. It covers a wide spectrum of subjects, embracing the science, engineering, technology, economics and history of all forms of sodium chloride salt and their uses. As a broad international platform, the 2018 World Salt Symposium will enable researchers, producers and users of salt to become acquainted with the latest developments and technologies in this important industrial area.

In the field of Salt and Health, we are pleased to announce that the following world-renowned experts, who have made unparalleled contributions to the field, have already committed to be keynote speakers at the upcoming symposium:

Salt Production Sessions

The Salt Production track of the symposium will cover a broad range of topics relating to all aspects of salt production, including mine safety, history of salt production, solar salt issues and possibilities for value added products in the salt marketplace. More than 60 papers will be presented in podium sessions and poster sessions, along with discussion sessions on safety topics. This will make the World Salt Symposium the global forum of choice for discussions on salt production.

Salt and the Environment

The Salt and the Environment track of the symposium will cover several topics that include a number of sessions and keynotes on the benefits of technological developments to the use of rock salt in winter maintenance and how these developments move forward the concept of safe and sustainable snowfighting. Additionally, several sessions will look at ways in which the salt production industry has worked to ensure that the various processes of producing salt also provide substantial environmental benefits.

"We are pleased to bring the World Salt Symposium back to the United States and to host this important event. The Salt Institute is also happy to announce that we have made our 55-year-old World Salt Symposia archive available on a new website that will serve as a permanent and public archive of all past and future papers presented at World Salt Symposia," said Lori Roman, President of the Salt Institute.
